When Words Fail, Pictures Speak

It’s an emotionally tough month at PrintWild, we celebrate many joyful moments with our clients but also share in difficult times and grief through images like this one.

Sending love in the form of a picture

The news that her classmate was a victim of recent shark attack prompted this caring friend to turn her group shot into a Faceblock, she wanted to do something special for him and sent him this to remind him of his fabulous classmates.Her body boarding friend has had his leg amputated above the knee and we’re told is recovering well after being discharged. Our thoughts are with him as he continues to recover and adjust.

Memorial images also pass through the PrintWild doors each year,  mostly arranged in a hurry to accommodate funeral service plans. We’re privileged to be able to help people in a small way during their times of grief.

Don’t forget to photograph your loved ones

We stumbled across Taryn online this month after spotting her tweet,
“For those of you who still have your Dad, take photos and videos of them all the time. I have virtually none, and today it’s hitting hard. @tatibble June 21, 2015.” We felt she needed to print a memorial image of her late dad, from the few pictures that she did have.

We’re with you in the good times and the bad

The PrintWild team are submerged in stories, good and bad, each day brings us a new set of lives, memories and images that are entrusted to our care.

We loved this description of us written by a visiting journalist last week, “…the nature of the work they do is not only dealing in printing and framing but in capturing memories, immortalising moments and helping people during their joyous times as well as in times of profound grief.  Printwild encompasses the most sublime combination of a hugely successful enterprise with bucket-loads of heart, passion and community spirit, and I can’t help but feel excited for the future and what we can achieve together!”

Sometimes we don’t have any words to say. When words fail, pictures speak.

Fast, friendly and professional service. From placing the order online to reciving the order, which only took 5 days, I was updated regularly on my order throughout the process. The canvas prints and faceblocks are excellent quality. I highly recommend PrintWild, if your a professional photographer or just want to print some family pics. They are the best! Keep up the great work!

Thank you Printwild for helping me keep and display my memories. Printwild have such a user friendly website and the ordering process was so easy, simply upload your images.I was kept in the loop throughout the entire ordering process so knew when my photos were edited, being printed and ready. The customer service is amazing and the staff are super helpful. All my photos were sent for met to proof before they were printed and i was able to keep some text on one of my images as well. The courier was quick and i was given tracking details to follow my order. The photos arrived and WOW! The magnatots look like glass tiles and the quality of print on both the magnets and photoblocks is crystal clear. i was able to unpack and hang my photoblocks, which i'm now addicted to, straight away. Such wonderful ways of displaying lots of photos in a small space. i love it! Can't wait to put in my next order

As a pro photographer having shot around 500 weddings, it’s extremely important that our brides are happy with their Canvas photos. Every bride as well as other clients have praised the quality of all the products supplied by Printwild 💕 Besides the great products and excellent services, the staff from the top and across all the spectrums, are an absolute delight to deal with and make one feel special. Having dealt with Printwild for over a decade I highly recommend them.
